La Posada Chetumal Hostel apparently is a new hostel in the city of Chetumal . I spent 17 nights consecutively in the hostel , here are from my viewpoints the good and the not-so-good aspects.
GOOD : great location on a residential avenue Venustiano Carranza, safe and secure at all times; it is 3-5 minutes from a local supermarket called Super Bodega, close to ATMs of HSBC at the side of the supermarket, plenty of small restaurants on Avenida San Salvador only 5 minutes from the hostel.
The hostel oner-manager, a vivacious lady by the first name of Olga, lives in the hostel and is always available to answer any queries on the hostel and on the city of Chetumal attractions; just ask . She also understands English and French.
Breakfast is included in the price : it is sel-served and you are expected to clean after yourself the cups, glasses and plates you did use; cereal, milk, eggs, slice bread and coffee. No additional cost.
You can relax on the living room couch, use a computer to e-mail friends and family and you can also use the verandah to smoke a few cigarettes. Use of the living room TV to watch movies or dvds or news.
The beds are comfortable, daily cleaning of the place is provided by the staff of 2 , also living on the hostel grounds.
Chetumal is a hot and humid city , the hostel building is made of blocks. Expect to really sweat and suffer the heat as the hostel is NOT airconditioned; it is really hard to fall to sleep and relax in your room if you are sweating hard. The owner-manager of the hostel assured me she will install air-conditioning in the three private rooms before next September 2013.
If you cannot stand the heat inside , it is best to check other hostels which provide air-conditioning.
